I'm searching out the best canned brews to help lighten my pack on outdoor pursuits. I'm partial to IPAs / double IPAs and I've tried my share from 21st Amendment, Oskar Blues, Anderson Valley, Avery, Caldera, Six Point, Sly Fox, TallGrass, ButterNuts, and more. Oskar Blues Gubna had been my canned IPA of choice but recently, I was gifted a four pack of 120 ibus of pure joy from The Alchemist in Waterbury, Vermont. I give you, Heady Topper.
It's not even close. It's like Pliny in a can. Now if only it was more accessible. Now I'm not against macrobrews - they have their time and place for me - but I'd rather carry one of these than three PBRs any day. So if MGD is your go to, I'm down with that. I don't care to get into a craft vs. macro debate here or to rehash the "A-hole" thread (which I thoroughly enjoy). I just wanted to streamline the conversation a little.
So what are your favorites? Anything new coming down the canning pipeline from your local breweries?
